Windscreen Chip Repairs
Our Tauranga auto-glass specialists repair a wide range of windscreen chips at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
A small or badly repaired windscreen chip can quickly develop cracks which may result in an expensive total windscreen replacement. At BOP Windscreens, we have the tools and skills to repair your windscreen to its original strength.
We offer practical and convenient professional windshield chip repair service for all types of vehicles. All our windscreen repairs follow the Australian New Zealand safety Standard AS/NZS 2366.1-1999, and we can let you know if the chips or cracks on your vehicle can be repaired or need to be replaced.
Call our team today to know if your windscreen needs a repair or replacement.
We specialise in windscreen chip repair
We use high-quality resin to make sure that your windscreen looks good on the surface, and properly bound and cured onto the cracks to avoid further repairs in the future. You can give us a call or bring your car over to our shop so our technicians can examine the extent of the damage.
Types of windscreen damage
Key things that determine if a windshield chip can be repaired:
- Size of the chip
Windscreen cracks and chips vary in size and degree of severity. We can typically repair chips with a diameter of an inch or less, or cracks that are no longer than 18 inches. But if the chip has more than three long cracks or a pit size of more than ⅜ of an inch, a replacement may be required. In order to get a proper assessment, we highly recommend that you visit our premises so our technicians can provide you with the proper recommendation.
We may recommend a windscreen replacement if the crack or chip is located within the critical viewing area or at the edge of your windscreen. A replacement may also be necessary if the damage extends to both the exterior and interior layers of the windscreen glass.
- Number of previous repairs
If your windscreen has had a total of eight or more repairs in the past, your windshield glass may no longer be in its toughest shape and thus a replacement might be needed. We may also require a windscreen replacement if two or more previous repairs have been located on the driver’s critical viewing area.
Covered by insurance
If you are fully insured, we will be happy to assist you with the claim procedure. Depending on your level of insurance coverage, our chip repair service can be of little to no cost for you.
